Osama Bin Laden
The Middle East, always in turmoil, may have been upended in fundamental strategic terms by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, referred to generally by the shorthand label ISIS. The movement seemingly has emerged from nowhere, at least in terms of general public awareness and media attention.
Considerable news has been generated by U. S. military strikes in two African countries, while less commentary is resulting from the passing of a major military leader in Asia, but the two stories are related. Regarding war and revolution, fundamental lessons are enduring.
Pakistan’s National Assembly elections on May 11 provided a significant victory to Nawaz Sharif and his Pakistan Muslim League-N. Despite violence, turnout was approximately 60 percent. A peaceful power transition to this opposition party means progress from the nation’s history of military coups.
“Brian, we’re going to get hit again. It’s going to happen. I just hope when it happens, I’m not in Washington.”
Last Monday, a steel girder rose 1,271 feet above New York City and was affixed to the Freedom Tower, making it the tallest building in the metropolis. It happened on a clear, crisp day, not unlike Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the twin towers, each a small city in and of themselv…
As President Barack Obama prepares his State of the Union address, to be delivered tonight, and as Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels prepares his Republican rebuttal -- a clear sign we are a nation divided, not united -- there's one topic they must not forget: Afghanistan.
Let's just take a brief look at a few things that went beyond our control in 2011, that perhaps reveals something about us as a people, and us as a species.
WASHINGTON | In a significant new blow to al-Qaida, U.S. airstrikes in Yemen on Friday killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an American militant cleric who became a prominent figure in the terror network's most dangerous branch, using his fluent English and Internet savvy to draw recruits for attacks in …
While the impact of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks has waned over the past decade, Charles Gallmeier said the events of that fateful day were profound enough to have left a lasting impact on this country.
Sooner or later — and we prefer sooner — the nation must retool its defense priorities, strategies and spending for 21st century threats. Military spending must not be forgotten in the zeal to cut the federal budget.
To say George Bush and Dick Cheney had anything to do with getting Osama bin Laden is like saying the Republican Party is pro-choice.
President Barack Obama "double-tapped" Osama bin Laden. That's spy slang for executing with two shots -- normally to the head, but in bin Laden's case we were told it was first the chest and then the head. Maybe that was the best solution, since you don't have to be concerned with denying ha…
I worked in the World Trade Center until Sept. 11, 2001, so in a sense I suppose Osama bin Laden attempted to kill me on that day.
It is amazingly ironic that some of us celebrated the life of one individual while we also celebrated the death of another on the same day.
President Barack Obama has made some bold moves -- and like them or not, they're bold -- that might have ramifications in Indiana next year.
